THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK
Jesus the only door to true freedom
Freedom of the mind.
Freedom of knowing
Most of the traits are for people to care about each other.
Our lives on this earth is like a movie
There is a mask. There is a person behind.
Personality test talk about our own.
…. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by WHAT GOD IS and by WHAT HE DOES FOR US , not by what we are and what we do for him.
ROMANS 12:3 MSG
Knowing what God is and what He does for us will help us know ourselves
Let the inner movement of your heart always be to LOVE one another, and never play the role of an actor wearing a MASK…
ROMANS 12:9 TPT
The only way to know ourselves is to know what He has done for us.
Does God has personality?
What do you think is His personality?
You are spirit soul and body
The heart is the one that is supposed to ℓσνє and not fake
unfeigned, undisguised, sincere
From G1 (as a negative particle) and a presumed derivative of G5271; undissembled, that is, sincere: – without dissimulation (hypocrisy), unfeigned.
Personality is not a real thing. Is a trait of a person
Personality means a mask
Personality can change when we grow up
“Great sorrow awaits you religious scholars and Pharisees—frauds and imposters! You are nothing more than tombs painted with fresh coats of white paint—tombs that look shining and beautiful on the outside, but within are found decaying corpses full of nothing but corruption.
Outwardly you MASQUERADE as righteous people, but inside your hearts you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
MATTHEW 23:27-28 TPT
We put on the mask to portray we are good people
The root is His righteousness and not have our own righteousness
Personality test is a combination of spirit soul and body
Introvert or intuitive
Sensing – physical
Move by senses
What the world psychologist is they put spirit soul and body together
The soul the mind and emotion
The spirit man is called the intuition. The gut feeling.
God is Potter and we are clay
A person born again, introvert needs alone time to communicate with God
In the introversion they are communicating with God. Jesus draws the energy with God
There is a real person today in Christ
There is nothing evil in personality but it is a mask.
Who is the real you after been born again?
GOD is a SPIRIT : and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
JOHN 4:24 KJV
“Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship.
God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.”
John 4:24 MSG
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for GOD is LOVE .
1 John 4:8 KJV
If I were to speak with eloquence in earth’s many languages, and in the heavenly tongues of angels, yet I didn’t express myself with love, my words would be reduced to the hollow sound of nothing more than a clanging cymbal.
And if I were to have the gift of prophecy with a profound understanding of God’s hidden secrets, and if I possessed unending supernatural knowledge, and if I had the greatest gift of faith that could move mountains, but have never learned to love, then I am nothing.
And if I were to be so generous as to give away everything I owned to feed the poor, and to offer my body to be burned as a martyr , without the pure motive of love, I would gain nothing of value.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:1-3 TPT
Love is large and incredibly patient.
Love is gentle and consistently kind to all.
It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else .
Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance.
Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor.
Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-5 TPT
Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong.
Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others.
Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:6-7 TPT
Love never stops loving. It extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away.
It is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. Love remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten. Our present knowledge and our prophecies are but partial, but when love’s perfection arrives, the partial will fade away.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:8-10 TPT
We cannot be good other than having His righteousness
When I was a child, I spoke about childish matters, for I saw things like a child and reasoned like a child. But the day came when I matured, and I set aside my childish ways.
For now we see but a faint reflection of riddles and mysteries as though reflected in a mirror, but one day we will see face-to-face.
My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything, just as everything about me has been fully understood.
Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:11-13 TPT
There is a old man behind the mask
And have put on the
NEW man, which is renewed in
knowledge after the image of him
that created him
COLOSSIANS 3:10 KJV
But let it be the HIDDEN MAN of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
1 Peter 3:4 KJV
For I delight in the law of God after the INWARD man
ROMANS 7:22 KJV
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the SPIRIT of MAN which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
1 CORINTHIANS 2:11 KJV
So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it.
Pursue the things over which Christ presides.
Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you.
Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.
COLOSSIANS 3:1-2 MSG
Be alert to what is going on around Christ
See things from God’s perspective
No more walk around just look at right left centre
Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life, remember) shows up again on this earth, you’ll show up, too—the real you, the glorious you. Meanwhile, be content with obscurity, like Christ.
COLOSSIANS 3:3-4 MSG
And that means killing off everything connected with that way of death: sexual promiscuity, impurity, lust, doing whatever you feel like whenever you feel like it, and grabbing whatever attracts your fancy. That’s a life shaped by things and feelings instead of by God.
It’s because of this kind of thing that God is about to explode in anger. It wasn’t long ago that you were doing all that stuff and not knowing any better. But you know better now, so make sure it’s all gone for good: bad temper, irritability, meanness, profanity, dirty talk.
COLOSSIANS 3:5-8 MSG
Lying is always covering up something
We are done with the old life of pretending
So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense.
Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
COLOSSIANS 3:12-14 MSG
Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate THANKFULNESS .
Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives.
Instruct and direct one another using good common sense.
And sing, sing your hearts out to God!
Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.
Very beautifully clothed
When we see what God has done for us
Don’t look at what we lack and don’t have
Every morning wake up with the thankfulness
Open our spiritual eyes
Thank God for our eyes that we can see
Let the ℓσνє go bigger and bigger
Beloved ones, God has called us to live a life of freedom in the Holy Spirit. But don’t view this wonderful freedom as an opportunity to set up a base of operations in the natural realm.
Freedom means that we become so completely free of self-indulgence that we become servants of one another, expressing love in all we do.
GALATIANS 5:13 TPT
For love completes the laws of God. All of the law can be summarized in one grand statement: “Demonstrate love to your neighbor, even as you care for and love yourself.”
GALATIANS 5:14 TPT
As you yield freely and fully to the dynamic life and power of the Holy Spirit, you will abandon the cravings of your self-life.
For your self-life craves the things that offend the Holy Spirit and hinder him from living free within you ! And the Holy Spirit’s intense cravings hinder your old self-life from dominating you!
So then, the two incompatible and conflicting forces within you are your self-life of the flesh and the new creation life of the Spirit.
GALATIANS 5:16-17 TPT
chasing after things instead of God, manipulating others, hatred of those who get in your way, senseless arguments, resentment when others are favored, temper tantrums, angry quarrels, only thinking of yourself, being in love with your own opinions, being envious of the blessings of others, murder, uncontrolled addictions, wild parties, and all other similar behavior.
Haven’t I already warned you that those who use their “freedom” for these things will not inherit the kingdom realm of God!
GALATIANS 5:20-21 TPT
Righteousness peace and joy in the Holy Spirit
But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows , peace that subdues , patience that endures , kindness in action , a life full of virtue, faith that prevails , gentleness of heart , and strength of spirit .
Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.
GALATIANS 5:22-23 TPT
Fruit don’t need to have effort to bear the fruits
We don’t have to be confined by the personality test. That old man died
Into the perfect man as the Lord has created for us
Now we can go further through the new man.
The old man is the limit
All our abilities power and strength are in Christ
All we need to do is to feed the Spirit man
